We finally found good Mexican food in Novi!! Cute little Mexican restaurant with an authentic cuisine and live music. I recommend the Pollo Ranchero. Chips were hot and guacamole was excellent. We had excellent service as well. We will be back!!

We've been going to El Mariachi since they were at their previous location on Pontiac Trail. Good food always & courteous wait staff. The owner is usually there to welcome you. A party atmosphere when the guitar player is there.

Amazing food. Alejandro is a great server. Excellent food. Unique flavors and surprisingly inexpensive. Best Mexican I've had in a long time. Everything was perfect. Never had a half empty cup or chips. Just fantastic in every way. Go here. Often. Lol.

We had dinner at El Mariachi for $31 plus tip. That was a large fajita platter, carne asada platter and a beer. Plus good salsa and chips before hand. Everything was good and, for the price, an excellent value. Good service and very quick.
